What is Firo (FIRO)

Firo is an anonymity-oriented cryptocurrency that relies on its Lelantus protocol to mask transaction details on its public blockchain ledger. Lelantus implements specialized zero-knowledge proofs that do not require trusted setup and rely on well established cryptographic constructions. Its design has inspired several other privacy-focused cryptocurrencies to follow its lead.

Firo was formerly known as Zcoin and its mainnet was launched in 2016. It continues to push the envelope in privacy preserving technologies with independent research such as its upcoming Lelantus Spark protocol. It also utilizes Dandelion++ for network-layer protections against privacy intrusions.

Firo (FIRO) features

Firo is an open-source, UTXO cryptocurrency that is a fork of the Bitcoin protocol and was originally designed to extend the privacy capacity of the legacy cryptocurrency.

Firo distinguishes itself from Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in several clever ways, including the implementation of its MTP hashing algorithm for its PoW consensus (designed to be ASIC-resistant), and its unique Sigma Protocol version of zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs).

The Sigma Protocol is the cardinal feature of Firo, which formerly relied on the ZeroCoin protocol for its use of ZKPs. Sigma Protocol is different in that it has an anonymity set encompassing all minted coins in a particular RSA accumulator set. Users can mint and burn privacy coins in Firo without a transaction history, thus severing any links between inputs and outputs on the network.

ZCash extends this privacy emphasis to the network layer with Tor, the onion-routing overlay network, and Dandelion -- a broadcasting protocol designed to make tracing IP addresses more challenging.

Like some other privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies (e.g., Monero), Firo has an egalitarian focus on mining with a strong position on maintaining decentralization. Using its MTP mining algorithm, Firo precludes specialized mining hardware, called ASICs, from being able to mine on the chain -- fostering a mining ecosystem of CPUs and GPUs.

The FIRO coin follows a mining schedule derived from Bitcoin, where block reward halving occurs every 4 years, and is also coupled with a founders reward that allocates 7 percent of mining rewards to the founders for the first 4 years.
